“Medium to deep garnet-purple coloured it offers up expressive redcurrants and blackberry compote notes with hints of cassis unsmoked cigars dried herbs and rose hip tea. Medium-bodied soft very fresh and with exhilarating vibrancy it has loads of mineral sparks on the finish.” – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

Sarget de Gruaud-Larose is the second wine of Château Gruaud-Larose. A blend of 51% Cabernet Sauvignon 31% Merlot and the remainder a mix of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot it’s far more approachable in its youth than the dark and brooding Grand Vin. Expect notes of hedgerow berries cherries plum crème de cassis mocha spices and rose and violet chocolate creams. 2016 was a fabulous year for claret with one of the world’s most eminent critics describing it as “A vintage for today’s Bordeaux wine lovers.” This red is a fantastic window into its delights.

Saint Julien’s Château Gruaud-Larose is much loved among Bordeaux connoisseurs. The fortunes of this producer which can trace its history all the way back to a knight called Joseph Stanislas Gruaud in the early 1700s can only be described as a rollercoaster. Maybe that’s why it’s so adored the thrill of the chase because when it’s good it’s truly one of Bordeaux’s finest.   

Château Gruaud-Larose is now owned by the Taillan Group’s Jacques Merlaut who also runs Châteaux La Gurgue Haut-Bages-Libéral Citran Ferrière Chasse-Spleen Rabaud Promis and more. Its Grand Vin is one of Saint Julien’s most full-bodied and long-lived wines definitely one to tuck away in the cellar for a few years while the tannins soften. However the second wine – named after the family who built the château – drinks beautifully on release.
